Mercedes Maria's story

Mercedes Maria is married and from this relationship she has 5 children who are all adults. Her husband is a carpenter. They live in Rocafuerte canton, which is known for the delicious sweets the locals prepare. It was hit hard by the effects of COVID-19.

She is a hardworking woman who likes earning her resources and using them to help her husband to move forward, especially now, when everything is so hard because of the health emergency. It's thanks to her sewing workshop that they are moving forward. She used to make lots of garments, but this declined during the pandemic so she started making masks and protective suits. Now things are improving, and she's making her clothing again, which makes her very happy.

This loan is for buying fabric, thread, and other materials for making clothing.
